  ESRB Investigation Concludes, and its Bad News for Grand Theft Auto - Official News

As much as you may have loved the Hot Coffee Mod before today, what you are about to read may cause you to wish it was never created.

Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO) announced today that the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has changed the rating of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on all platforms from "Mature 17+" (M) to "Adults Only 18+" (AO) because of the so-called "hot coffee mod," an unauthorized third party modification that alters the retail version of the game. Take-Two cooperated fully with the ESRB's investigation.

Rockstar Games are to cease production of San Andreas immediately and are to release a patch to prevent 'hot coffee' from working in the game. This is especialy bad for hot coffee fans as you will probably need the 1.1 patch to fix the sound and other issues common in the game.

It didn't take long for the effects of the rating to be felt. Late Wednesday, Target, and Best Buy issued press releases they were pulling all versions of San Andreas from shelve.

Unconfirmed reports had GameStop following suit, and Wal-Mart told CNN/Money that it had issued orders to all stores to stop selling the game. "We do not sell games that are rated AO," Wal-Mart spokesperson Karen Burk told the site.

It appears that the Soccor Moms have won this one. Will our world ever be free? Stay Tuned for the future of Grand Theft Auto, however, this is not looking good at all. Could this be the last chapter in the Grand Theft Auto franchise?
